After our slow summer here, time seems to be moving a lot faster lately as we try to figure out our next move. We’ve been canvassing the house-sit and job boards, meeting new people through the web in all kinds of places – from our own hometown of Cocoa, FL to Mexico to Maine and many places in between. So far there’s been interest expressed on both sides, info exchanged, even a few Skype conversations – but no definitive answer, yet.
Feeling a little frustrated, I drew an ‘inspiration card’ today from my tarot deck; interestingly, it turned out to be the Wheel of Fortune, with its apt interpretation, below.
The Wheel of Fortune suggests that there are external factors that are influencing your situation that may be unknown to you or outside of your control. It is as though the Universe is just dishing up whatever it pleases at this time, and it can feel quite unpredictable and unnerving as a result (especially if you like being in control most of the time!). This is one of the challenging aspects of the Wheel of Fortune since no matter which way the Wheel of Fortune turns, it is impossible to try and change it. So, you might as well try to accept what is happening and adapt accordingly. If a crisis seems inevitable, recall that in every crisis lies opportunity. When you have been pushed in a new direction, know that every path leads somewhere, even if you do not know where it is. Such events are simply out of your control, and if you can accept that then the ride gets a lot easier.
Keep optimistic and have faith that the Universe will take care of the situation in the best way possible. This will be a pivotal point in your life, where new options become possible, and a chance encounter may become a turning point. The appearance of this card shows that change is not only likely to happen, it is certain to happen, and soon. And it will likely be a dramatic change from the established order, something which may require making a first step on a new and unfamiliar path.
So where do you think we should (or will) go next? Suggestions (or your best guesses) welcome!
